    Southern Art’s red velvet 12-layer cake is no small feat to eat. This slice towers over your plate as white pillowy layers break up the rich red cake for a heavy dose of creamy frosting. Read more

    The bar offers one of the largest bourbon selections in the country. Can't decide on just one? Try a flight! Also sample the ever changing cocktail menu always updates with fresh seasonal ingredients.

    If you're with a group, eat family style! Order a couple fried chicken plates with salads and lots of side pots! Don't forget desert, the pretzel pie and 12 layer red velvet cake are to die for!

    I was underwhelmed with the fried chicken as I'd read many good reviews. The size of the drum and breast for the price was disproportionate. But It was tender, the crust was very crunchy and crispy.

    WOW!!! Food was amazing as was the service. My favorites: fried chicken, sliced ham from the ham bar, caramel chocolate pretzel pie and red velvet cake. The biscuits are out of this world!

    Lunch is also where I found my favorite dish, the $17 charcuterie plate (it's advertised as a ham board, but there's only one ham on it). Read more

    The service is impeccable and the food as well. The bourbon is the real reason for my visit though. Their selection of bourbon and their craft cocktails cannot be beat.

    I liked the farro salad, a simple combination of the grain with some cucumbers and tomato and served with a tangy broad bean hummus. Read more

    The "Buckhead Express" lunch is an excellent choice for anyone!! Comes with soup or salad, a meat dish and an iced tea or soda.

    I heard the Buttermilk Fried Chicken is the dish here. And it's definitely one of the most tender pieces of chicken I've ever had in my life. But that's all. Nothing special.

    Chef Art Smith creates a WOW with his original recipe. It's his 12-layer red velvet cake with moist red chocolate cake and cream cheese frosting. Yes ... twelve layers! Read more

    Pork cheeks are my current favorite. The lil gem salad is the bees knees and add salmon or a crab cake... BOOM ::: oh and can't forget some HAM

    Fried chicken and catfish is delicious. Southern food made into a fine cuisine. However, no parking validations. Pretty lame, but still very tasty.
  • Shannon D.
    The food is beyond average. This place would not survive in any trendy area at all. I tried one of the top end steaks and it was bland to say the least.
  • Kyle U.
    Great Sunday brunch. Lots of options. Very breakfast heavy if you choose the buffet option. Also reasonably priced to my surprise.

    Because Atlanta knows upscale Southern cooking, Southern Art falls short of our expectations as a city. Read more

    S-Art's aged rib eyes is sourced from a 100yr-old cattle ranch. Dig into it, then drink late into the evening at the bourbon bar, it's open until 2 AM. Read more

    Never a bad meal here. Everything is foodie fab. Their half a sandwich and soup lunch special is a delicious budget option.

    Especially the Bourbon Bar is highly to recommended. A bit ham and cheese and great drinks. All what the heart need.

    I eat here every time I visit Atlanta and I'm wowed every time. Start off with their beautiful deviled eggs!

    Eating healthy? Try a simple grilled protein with two sides. The salmon is bliss. There are sauces, but you don't need them.

    The Cornmeal Dusted Catfish was really good. Wish it would've been 2 pieces though.
